I've had the 100ml bottle for quite some time now. I loved this a few years ago, I used to wear it with TBS satsuma lotion and everyone used to ask me what I was wearing. I never told the combo lol, I'd name one or the other. The perfume is a nice everyday scent, very clean smelling. Perfect for the summer.
Toners -Shiseido - Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Balancing Softener
aquariusa 5/9/2007 6:07:00 PM
Okay I got this after Shiseido's SPF55 turned my skin into a giant flake, I asked the SA what I can do about it and she suggested this. I have naturally oily-como acne prone skin, and this did a good job of getting my skin back to normal. HOWEVER, after that it is no use to me because it makes my skin oilier because this softner is really rich. I use it once a week to get my skin nice and glowy, if used more than that I turn into an oily-acne mess. Shiseido skin care products clearly are not made for my skin. And may I add this is probably the most expensive toner Ive ever purchased in my life!
Lipstick -Shiseido - Sheer Gloss Lipstick in Honey Tea [DISCONTINUED]

Very nice, no nonsense color for a perfectly polished look for the day. I wasnt intending on buying this as I stumbled on it accidentally on the counter while trying other lippies. It looks like burnt browninsh red in the tube, but it goes on as a sheer raisiny brown for me. Texture and longevity are great. Two thumbs up from me.! =)
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy - Sugar Plum
aquariusa 5/9/2007 6:00:00 PM
I got this product with a GWP, my mom said it looked good, but i thought it looked too pinky-magenta-ish on me. The texture was nice, the longevity was alright. It was also very smooth and moisterizing. I doubt I will repurchase this color, perhaps in a different color.
Okay cleanser, it is very gentle and ideal for sensitive skin types. I have oily acne prone skin and it did not do much for my skin, I much prefer the cream cleanser version since it gives a deeper and more thorough clean feel.
Scrubs -Clinique - 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula
aquariusa 4/8/2007 12:35:00 PM
I bought this scrub because it was a gentle scrub that I can use on my flaky acne prone skin. Although it is gentle, I found it a little too gentle, it did not take away any flakes in fact I found my flakes to actually look worse since it made them come to the surface. So Im back to using St. Ives again!
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent
aquariusa 4/8/2007 12:32:00 PM
I feel ridiculous spending over 20 dollars on eye m.u remover so Im glad Clinique has this product. It simply works great, I just put some on cotton ball and take a tissue and wipe the makeup right off. It is gentle too and does not irritate the eyes. Will repurchase after Im done!!
Nice gentle deep clean, works nicely on my acne prone skin and leaves it squeeky clean. You need less than a pea size amount and it is enough for your face. two thumbs up from me! btw great mu remover like others have stated!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Shine City
aquariusa 4/7/2007 4:49:00 PM
I already reviewed SL's generally but thought i'd do this one specially. This one product is great over lipstick because even thought its a want applicator for some reason the lipgloss color does not mix with the gloss, and the gloss is still the same color as I bought it..So happy officially HG clear gloss! =)
I love this lip gloss probably one of my all time favourites. The color is gorgeous, sheer pinky champagne color. The gloss is smooth and lasts a long time. Beautiful, perfect for day and night it is very versatile. Love it and it is a universally flattering shade in my opinion. =D
I really dont know how I feel about this product. It is good for the price which is a plus. The brush initially has too much product but thats okay since you can take some off. My problem is, that this is a really hard liner to use, the line takes a really really really long time to draw for me, if i want it precise. Also it takes a lot of practice to get it right up to the lash line. Im not that good with eyeliner so that maybe my problem. But once Im done with the line it is very nice, and well intense. Good for a night on the town, and it lasts through everything. I will repurchase because it is a must have for the stash, but Ive had the same tube for over a year and Im not even half way through. =)
Lipstick -Clinique - Color Surge Bare Brilliance in Precious Pink
aquariusa 3/29/2007 7:39:00 PM
Okay shade, I kinda forgot about it. I dont know why I purchased this as I am a NW 35 and this lipstick is tres pale pink. It shows up okay on my face, nice with smoky eyes. But I dont use it everyday, heck I dont even remember when I bought it. I just picked it up in my stash today and it looked cute as a spring shade. The texture and longevity were all right. 2 lippies off for being too pale on me, but that not their fault lol.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipstick- Tiger Eye
aquariusa 3/29/2007 7:35:00 PM
Mother gave this to me, said she had no use for it. All I can say is that this is a perfect summer shade!!! I used it last year a lot with the bronze summer look. To me this is what blizzard would be like if it were a lip stick in bronze (i know that it a very odd description lol) When I'am done I will repurchase.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture In Control Oil Free [DISCONTINUED]
aquariusa 3/23/2007 2:23:00 PM
I'll give it this much it moisturizes very well, it is nice and light which is a plus for acne prone skin And it mattifies the skin slightly. Now for the downside it does not control oil what so ever. And is waaaaaaaaay to overpriced, even the Estee Lauder one is cheaper (although that one is worse). Mediocre moisterizer that you do NOT need to spend 45 bucks on.
Moisturizers -Estee Lauder - Clear Difference Oil-Control Hydrator

This product does a whole bunch of nothing for me. It doesnt hydrate, and althought it kinda controls oil my face turns red after apply this. Extremely dissapointed.
